 ALERT LEVEL  


MAP OF MEAN DAMAGE BY SETTLEMENT  
 

 REMARKS: GFZ gives M7.1, TWC has M7.2. THe GFZ epicenter is farther to the NW where the population is less dense, thus this estimate based on the GS parameters includes the worst case. The settlements in the vicinity of the epicenter are small. The depth might be deeper, in which case fewer casualties.
